MAC x Ellie Goulding Only You Lipstick ♡ Review, Like, Dislike & Swatches

Today I am sharing with you my review of the MAC x Ellie Goulding Lipstick in Only You. 

MAC has collaborated with singer / songwriter Ellie Goulding in 2015 and together they have created a makeup collection which features face, eyes and lips products in peachy neutral shades. 

If I say that I had no idea who Ellie Goulding was until I saw the launch of her MAC collection, will you throw your lipsticks at me?! Please don't ruin your lipsticks heheh ~ It's no surprise that I didn't know who Ellie Goulding was because nowadays I listen to mostly C-pop and K-pop.

Since I am not a fan of Ellie Goulding, or more correctly, I didn't know who she was, her overall collaboration with MAC Cosmetics didn't appeal to me as much as other Limited Edition collections from MAC. The only item I got from this collection is the lipstick in Only You, it was on sale and it looks pretty in most online swatches and ya'know, I gotta have it.

MAC x Ellie Goulding Lipstick comes in a Limited Edition packaging which features a shiny black lipstick tube and Ellie Goulding's logo printed in a rose gold shade, the logo is also embossed on the lipstick itself.

MAC Only You Lipstick is described as a mid-tone coral with a cremesheen finish. The colour shown up on my light to medium skin tone as a salmon-ish peachy pink, it has a great pigmentation that is sheer upon first application and it is buildable to your desire opacity, the colour will eventually becomes a full opaque coverage with a couple of swipes.

MAC Cremesheen finish is one of the most comfortable lipstick formula to wear, although it sometimes emphasize dry patches and lip lines, plus the application isn't always very smooth; but that doesn't bother me too much because the formula soften once it warms up on the lips.

Only You wears for approximately three hours on me, then when the colors fades away, the faded into the 'lip line look' which I really dislike as a lot of times I am unaware of it and it looks like I draw my lip line and forgot to fill in my lipstick on the day.
